The AI Now Initiative hosted its annual Symposium at the MIT Media Lab, gathering experts from different disciplines to discuss the social implications of artificial intelligence technologies. AI Now co-founders Kate Crawford and Meredith Whittaker kicked-off the event and drew on examples from the last twelve months to show how quickly AI systems are starting to impact core social institutions.
The AI Now 2017 Symposium addressed three themes: the state of research (with a focus on bias in machine learning), the state of policy (how will policies related to AI develop in the era of Trump), and the state of law (with a focus on basic rights and liberties).
